Williams is the first Formula 1 team to unveil its 2015 challenger. The
photos give fans a first glimpse of the new-look FW37 car, which will be driven by Valtteri Bottas and Felipe Massa.
Following on from a successful season in 2014 Williams hopes the FW37 can continue the positive momentum into another competitive season of racing. The performance of the FW36 in 2014 saw the team move forward from ninth in the Constructors' Championship to third, obtaining nine podiums throughout the season and a front row lockout at the Austrian Grand Prix.
"The notion for the FW37 was to look closely at the FW36 and its performances," says Williams chief technical officer Pat Symonds.
"We then went about recognizing what had worked well and identifying and resolving the areas that we felt needed to be improved. Although the aerodynamics of the car were impressive there is always room for improvement particularly as we handle the new 2015 nose regulations. The design of the FW37 has stemmed from the performance of the FW36 but the conceptual ideas came long before the 2014 successes."
Pat Symonds acknowledged that new rules for the 2015 season were challenging to implement.
"The change in regulations offered us a slight headache. The new front bulkhead and nose geometry had much more of an impact than we had initially anticipated and the effect on the aero was profound. The team have worked hard on pulling back the deficit these regulations have made for us."
In addition to receiving more revenue from Formula 1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone for finishing third in the championship last year, Williams will also have new sponsors in 2015.
"We have added a few more high profile names to accompany the incredibly supportive group of partners we have,' team principal Frank Williams said. "After a very strong first year with Mercedes we are looking to further develop the relationship as we look for more podiums in 2015. I feel this year will be equally as exciting as the last and look forward to seeing the car on the grid at the first race."
The 2015 Williams FW37 is expected to hit the track for the first time on February 1 during the opening pre-season test at Jerez in Spain.
